Award-winning Mexican author, Alberto Ruy-Sanchez, discusses identity at UofL
The voice behind more than 20 books, Mexican author Alberto Ruy-Sanchez will speak on Arabian influences in Mexican culture this Wednesday, October 24th, at the University of Louisville at 4:30pm.
I have been sitting here slowly simmering a raw “culture is a melting pot” metaphor for a good 20 minutes.  My foot is jiggling against the chair; hot ginger tea makes my tongue tingle.  I am aware of these things very acutely at the moment as my brain pumps tactile...

Best-selling author Camille Paglia discusses Western art from A-to-Z at the Libr
Art is subjective, yes, but some eyes see better than others. Join writer and social critic, Camille Paglia, at the Louisville Free Public Library’s Main branch this Monday, October 22nd, as she discusses themes in Western art with her new book ‘Glittering Images’.
I do not consider myself an artist.  I find that I sound incredibly silly when I’ve introduced myself as such in the past.  People can see the lie spreading across my face as the words tumble out of my mouth and puddle on the floor in confusion between us.  It’s just not...

I have a collection of pipes that sits in my kitchen windowsill.  There are six of them there, balanced on their smooth, wooden noses in a stand; another three perched for display on bookshelves.  I like these pipes very much.  The curve fits so neatly against the fingers, swaddled...

Poets Lynnell Edwards and Sean Patrick Hill bring their words to Java
You may think donuts pair best with coffee, but I would challenge you to think even sweeter. Join poets Lynnell Edwards and Sean Patrick Hill for a deliciously free reading at Java Brewing Company tonight at 7:30pm.
It is scarf weather.  It has been for a hot minute.  This is, perhaps, old news to my savvy readers, but I feel such a moniker of Fall needs to be properly anointed; there is a difference between merely “chilly” and true “scarf weather”.  I like the concept of...

Best-selling author and Vietnam veteran, Karl Marlantes, brings his new book to
The best-selling author of ‘Matterhorn’, Karl Marlantes now brings his latest release exploring the world of combat to Carmichael’s Bookstore. Join him tomorrow night, Friday October 19th, for a presentation of ‘What It is Like to Go to War’ starting at 7pm.
War is something that needs no elaboration.  Or, at the least, very little commentary from my snarky tongue.  It’s a small word, one that rather just slides out of the mouth, very final and straightforward – like shutting a lid or closing a door.  There is nothing fussy...
